Happiness is...

// a good book and a large glass of wine after a long day at work

// snuggling between the husband and two dogs (others may consider this claustrophobic)

// new living room furniture.

// listening to a baby laugh.

// a fresh manicure and pedicure (bonus points for fresh highlights and a hair cut)

// spending a weekend binge watching Netflix with the husband

// Mexican food and a large margarita

// the sand between my toes and the sounds of the ocean in the background.

// a Triple Grande Skinny Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks

// coming home to a clean house

// spending time with family

// long weekends

// Road trips with the husband

// crawling into a bed with freshly washed sheets after a long day

// catching up with long distance friends

// happy hour

// weekends on the lake

// finally getting all 900 of my wedding pictures back (be prepared for wedding picture overload for the next couple of weeks. You have been warned!)


Today I'm excited to introduce you to the incredibly sweet Ashley from A Faithful Passion. Take it away Ashley!

Hey everyone! I’m Ashley and the girl over at A Faithful Passion. I’m 25, from a medium town in Texas, lover of flowers, my faith, & all things reading/writing. A Faithful Passion started because I needed an outlet to release my thoughts, opinions, and ramblings. This blog was placed on my heart so I followed my dream.

When and why did you start blogging? 
I started blogging April 2014 and I’m so in love with it. It allows me to truly be myself and express how I feel through me writing. I started blogging because I feel it was placed on my heart via my faith so I followed it. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

How did you come up with the name of your blog? 
I’m VERY passionate about everything in my life and there will never be any gray area with me; either I’m 100% in or out. I also have a strong faith within my religion and I wanted to incorporate that into the name some way.

What is your favorite movie and why? 
Gone with the Wind: I LOVE this movie because of that old, southern feel it brings to you. From the big, huge gowns to the huge plantation parties they would have. There wasn’t a care in the world and I love that. Not to mention, Scarlett was my FAVE character.

What is your favorite feature about yourself? 
I love my legs because they are soooo long. When I was younger I didn’t like them but now that I’m older they’ve grown on me and my best feature.

What do you like to do on your weekends? 
I enjoy relaxing and catching up on my recorded shows. I’ll sometimes watch Netflix, go out with friends, or nap all day. It all just depends on what I have planned.
